Vas, Father S.: Mangalore, (India)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Vas hands over the money Hudson sent to the missionary among the Gowdies. Father C. P. Coelho, the present missionary among the Gowdies, has been setting up schools. The priests would like to get a good Catholic weekly American newspaper. They can afford to say masses for a paper. Vas is working in a catecumenate where they have a few hundred converts. He has sent an account of devotion to Mary there. He has also sent a specimen of their Konkany language.

Fitte, C.S.C., S(tanislaus) F.: Notre Dame, (Indiana)
 to James F. Edwards: (Paris, France)

Edwards' postals and letter reached him. Their Provincial requested him to preach a retreat for the Brothers of St. Joseph's Farm. He does not do anything to please men or flatter superiors. He understands that two more priests have left the community, Fathers (Frederick) Reuter and (John) Thilman and one Brother, Vigbert of the Ave Maria. Brother Francis replaces him and is replaced himself by Brother Raymond. He is glad Edwards enjoyed his trip and will be pleased to hear Edwards talk of it. He is surprised there was no mention of Neuilly. Father John Guendling has been appointed irremovable Pastor in Peru to succeed Father (H ) Meissner, deceased. There is no Vicar-general yet for Fort Wayne. It appears Bishop (Herman) Alerding is sick again; and unable to attend Father (H.A.) Boeckelmann's silver jubilee No Archbishop has been appointed yet for New York or Chicago; Rome is slow but sure. There are great glorious prospects of the school's opening.

She hopes to be able to see Mrs. Brownson soon when she comes to Chicago for a visit.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Tuckernuck, (Massachusetts)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard has just received a letter from (Theodore F.) Dwight who is in Switzerland with his small family. Dwight is excited over an article which will appear in the "Century" entitled "Dr. Arnold's Son and Clough's Philip", Arthur Hugh Clough, Stoddard supposes. The writer, W(illia)m Arnold, is a grandson of Dr. Thomas (Arnold) of Rugby immortality, nephew of Matthew Arnold, and a brother of (Mary Augusta) Ward. Does Hudson care to make a note of this?

Doyle, W(illia)m T.: Milwaukee, (Wisconsin)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Doyle thanks Brownson for the copy of the Freeman's Journal but confesses that Father Oberle brought him the same copy. He encloses the clipped article by W(illiam) Markoe which may have escaped Brownson's notice. He discusses the article "The Ruin of Education in Ireland" by Frank Hugh O'Donnell found in the Nation of June 12. He thanks Brownson for the picture of Father Morissey; it does not bear out the criticism of the Globe writer. The letter of August 28 was very pleasing to Doyle since it answered his request fully. He encloses a criticism of the President by the Methodists. He would like to see Bishop (James A.) McFaul's federation scheme successful but thinks it will require a great deal of work and the suppression of quite a number of would-be orators. (No enclosures.)

 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Since business was slow last month and a number of bills had to be met, O'Byrne is not quite prepared to take up any notes due on the 21. He asks Brownson if it is agreeable with him to remit the $9.00 next week. He thinks by then he will receive a sufficient amount to cover this payment. His account is closed at the Brooklyn bank so all bills are to be remitted to him. He thinks he can meet all payments after this without delay and trusts this will be satisfactory.

Ganss, Father H(enry) G.: Carlisle, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ganss returns the letter altered and enlarged. He doesn't know if Hudson heard about his address to the Chicago Catholic Federation meeting. (Theodore) Roosevelt has done much for their Indian work and Ganss eulogized him for it. While he was making the address the President was entertaining Archbishop (Patrick John) Ryan and Whitelaw Reed at luncheon. Since then the German papers have been lambasting Ganss in all directions as the tool of the administration. Ganss has fair prospects of having four of their Indian Catholic schools placed on the government pay list. Some of the reservation schools are dumping grounds for pedagogical incompetence. Ganss expects to issue an open letter to Bishop (Sebastian Gebhard) Messmer; he is forced to vindicate Carlisle School from an attack occasioned by a good, but maladroit, nun.

Stockley, W(illiam) F.: Ottawa, Canada
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

If Hudson publishes what Stockley sent on Maryland, would he add a footnote to the mention of Rhode Island. Stockley sends Starbuck's letter. As Hudson mentioned his mind as to the Globe, may he say that he regrets his name appearing again.

Starbuck, C(harles) C.: Andover, Mass(achusetts)
 to (William F.) Stockley: (Ottawa, Canada)

Stockley's informant misspells the name of the English founder of Sunday schools. Starbuck knows nothing of Pope Marcellinus beyond Milman. For heresy it has always been acknowledged that the Church can judge a pope. Starbuck has read Johnson's article and was struck with the fact that Rhode Island confined the franchise to Protestants. It is mortifying that Deane should say that Jews and Catholics had full religious liberty merely because their opinions were not persecuted. Starbuck thinks Johnson is right in thinking that (Roger) Williams and his fellows had nothing in mind but to refuse to persecute Protestant minorities.
